Scorpio Mom Horoscope: October 8 – October 14
Being a mother is often a thankless job, Scorpio, but this week you’re due to receive plenty of accolades and applause, courtesy of a dreamy trine between Saturn and Neptune. Typically, your sign prefers behind-the-scenes work to the glare of the spotlight, but you’d be wise to sharpen your public speaking skills, as you may need to use them before the week is out. Check out a session or two of Toastmasters or take an improv acting class. Besides becoming more confident in front of a crowd, it gives you a break from your brood and provides stimulating adult interaction. Last Friday, structured Saturn set up camp in your sign for the next three years, which challenges you to assume greater leadership roles in your life. You’re more than up for the task, but make sure you have the right supports in place, Supermom. Being in charge involves knowing when to delegate and reach out for help. Have your back-up babysitters on speed dial, as you’re liable to attract exciting opportunities that you won’t want to turn down. This three-year Saturn cycle also ignites a desire to be your own boss, or to have more independence on the job. You may be inspired to transform your current employ into a work-from-home situation. Alternatively, you might have a business idea that you want to nurture. If you’re uncertain of how to proceed, enlist the help of a business coach or call on the advice of a Mompreneur in your social network. Sometimes you’re juggling so many things at once, but make sure you pay close attention to what your babes have to say this week. They may surprise you with innocent yet astute insights. When it comes to romance, single mamas should make room for mixing and mingling this week. A love connection could emerge with someone who’s willing to go the distance. Coupled? Variety is the spice of life, Scorpio, so dust off your LBD and make reservations for two at a snazzy restaurant, perhaps followed by some a theater performance. If you’re thinking of adding a new baby to your existing brood, even if you’re thinking well into the future, broach the topic with your partner this week to make sure you’re on the same page.
